La Roux about GaGa

“When Lady Gaga’s ‘Just Dance’ came out, I was totally unaware that performance art was going to be her vibe,” Jackson says. “Knowing what I know now, I think she always had this in mind but she didn’t have the money to do it. You have to build up this country’s trust and the industry’s trust, and there’s no way she would have been able to do anything weird straight away because everyone would have just told her to fuck off.” Jackson laughs. “I’m having that problem now. You have to build up people’s trust, and then you can get away with whatever you want. I just never thought in a million years — and this is completely honest — that we’d ever even aim for America, or that America would ever…not accept, but take on what we had to offer musically. Now that it’s started to take off, now that I’ve seen where it could go, I’m really excited. Now I’m like, ‘Fuck this, I’m going to do it.’”
